FLEECE & THANK YOU

Children in the hospitals need comfort every day of the year, and they want to be connected to friends outside the hospital. You can be that personal connection and make a child smile.

This awesome volunteer opportunity is to give the gift of your time at our warehouse. Our warehouse is small and we have a lot of fun! The blankets are at various stages of production in the warehouse. Your experience will be relaxing and the training is easy. In no time you will be working with confidence at one of our stations. Stations include, helping the team cut the fleece into our signature kits, heat pressing on the patch to each kit, creating the kit itself by folding, rolling and tying the kit. Another station would to be to check blankets for hospital readiness and the final station is prepping the blankets for delivery.

Your volunteer experience will help many children feel comfort and connection during an often frightening time.

There are also other volunteer opportunities to check out on our website such as ordering kits and making blankets at home or with your business, church group, school group - so many possibilities to create smiles for children in the hospitals.
